I spend my time chasing dreams,
not my own most of the time, but those of others.
These dreams keep telling my life where to go,
what to do;
they’re interjecting themselves into my own pursuit.
Yet, like a clam rolled amidst the waves, I am happy
to just chase dreams.
There’s a saying: “I’m chasing paychecks”
and I’ve heard some say “chase your future,”
but saying it like that sounds like chasing
At times, it may seem like my dreams run away,
but they’re trailing breadcrumbs
in the minds of others,
so while I fumble and feel through this maze,
I am still,
just chasing dreams.
